Not resolved
2 comments

I bought my timeshare at Silverleaf at a good price, and my husband and I use it. So, I have no complaints with the resort itself, but the telemarketing makes me wish I'd never gone near the place. Every month or so, our answering machine fills up with telemarketing calls from Silverleaf, offering us a visit to the resort to pitch another "special offer." We've gone to their meetings before, when we're staying at the resort and they offer us money to hear a new pitch, but we've never upgraded our timeshare and always tell them bluntly that we do not ever intend to spend more money on the timeshare.

Even so, we get inundated with offers to come to the resort and hear their latest pitch--and it's always the same pitch, by the way. They've been hawking their "diamond" plan for years; every time we hear it, they say that there are only a few slots left, then the plan is closing.

As much as I've enjoyed my stay at the resort, the experience is overshadowed by the horrible marketing people. I wish I had never bought into Silverleaf.

Timeshare Advocacy International is the leader in timeshare contract resolutions!

If you have been a victim of deceptive sales practices during your purchase or upgrade of your timeshare we have the solution. We are the only advocacy group in the U.S. that focuses on deceptive sales practices within the timeshare industry that is accredited with the BBB .

Additionally, we are the only company to win in court against the biggest timeshare company in the U.S. Timeshare Advocacy International Wins Lawsuit against World’s Largest Resort.

In November of 2010 TAI was sued by the largest timeshare developer in the world for assisting timeshare owners out of their contracts with their resort. The charges ranged from violating the Tennessee Uniformed Secrets Act, Tennessee Consumer Rights Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relationships, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, and unjust enrichment. On July 19, 2012 it took a jury less than 45 minutes to deliberate and return a verdict of “Not Guilty” on all charges.

“We are excited to finally have this decision behind us so we can now focus on one thing, and that is our clients. During the last 2 years they have been trying to do one thing and that is to shut us up and bankrupt us through the court system. We always felt that at the end of the day a jury would see that TAI is in the business to help people. If the timeshare industry would stop lying and sell their product honestly we would be out of business,” said Sean Austin.

“The jury’s verdict represents a victory for free speech and free enterprise, and against corporate bullying,” said Austin’s attorney, Greg Oakley of DHPM PC in a press release.

Timeshare Advocacy International is headquartered in Mount Juliet, TN and currently has a staff of 19 that do nothing but consult, coach, and mentor timeshare owners who have been deceived during their purchase or upgrade of their timeshares. “We specialize in helping timeshare owners not only get out of their timeshare contracts if they were lied to, but we also help them understand what happened and how they were scammed so this hopefully will not happen again!

I have to agree. This is a big waste of money that you can't get out of.

The maintenance fees are lifelong and only go up so even if you pay the bill off....you will still pay out. They always try and pressure you to upgrade under the guise of an owners update meeting.

Scam. I won the DVD player for going to the meeting....I should have gone to a flea market and picked up a nicer one.
